Membership Types

Full Active Membership $65 per Year

FULL ACTIVE MEMBERS: Any person who is an owner, trainer, driver or breeder of Standardbred horses who are licensed by the Ohio State Racing Commission, or are active members of the Unites States Trotting Association. As a full active Member, you will receive all the benefits of OHHA Membership and have voting privileges to elect the people that will play an important role in the direction the harness horse racing industry takes in Ohio.

Associate Membership $25 per Year

ASSOCIATE MEMBERS: Any person(s) interested in or directly involved in the Ohio Standardbred horse industry. Associate members enjoy publications, lobbying and access to a knowledgeable staff, without voting privileges. Many horse caretakers, and harness racing enthusiasts fall into this category and it is important that you join as an Associate Member because you will add strength in numbers to our bargaining power with a large membership.
